The Juno nominations were announced this morning, and although the list features the usual suspects (Nickleblegh, Billy Talent, Michael Bublé and yes, despite the fact I quite like him, Joel Plaskett is ubiquitous enough at these award ceremonies that he, too counts as a usual suspect) there are some fresh faces that we are quite excited about.
Amelia Curran has deservedly been recognized for her album (and Six Shooter records debut) Hunter Hunter under the Roots/Traditional Album of the Year category. I'm thrilled that this Coast cover star is getting her due. Whether she wins or not, this is gonna put her name on the map, and that's a good thing.

I've plucked out the local nominations below. The complete list is here.
